In 2015, a race of alien Others conquered Earth. They enslaved humanity not by force, but through an aggressive mind control that turned people into contented, unquestioning robots.
Except sixteen-year-old Althea isn’t content at all, and she doesn’t need the mysterious note inside her locket to tell her she’s Something Else. It also warns her to trust no one, so she hides the pieces that make her different, even though it means being alone.
The autumn she meets Lucas, everything changes.
Althea and Lucas are immune to the alien mind control, and together they search for the reason why. What they uncover is a stunning truth the Others never anticipated, one with the potential to free the brainwashed human race.
It’s not who they are that makes them special, but what.
And what they are is a threat. One the Others are determined to eliminate for good.
The Plot- I really liked the concept of this book, it wasn't your traditional Dystopian story nor was it quite traditional in the Science Fiction aspects either. From the beginning this story had a solid foundation and fantastic world building without boring the reader while doing so.
Althea- I really enjoyed Althea she was a great female protagonist. Althea was a confident character who knew she was different but smart enough to keep that fact hidden. While I pitied the situation Althea found herself in I couldn't help but keep rooting for her as the book went along.
The Others- OK so they came to Earth and basically enslaved the human race and we can all agree that's bad but c'mon that is what makes them such great villains. I can't wait to learn more about them in the next book.
The Cover- Hands down one of the prettiest self published covers I have ever seen. I love everything about it.
Nothing, Zero, Nada I can confidently say that I really enjoyed everything about this book from beginning to end. I wouldn't change a thing.
Pick this book up, simple as that. If your looking for the next great Dystopian series Whispers In Autumn is it. I finished this book in one day, it was unputdownable if that says anything. I will be giving Whispers In Autumn by Trisha Leigh ★★★★5 stars!!
I shuffle across the thick, brown carpet and kneel on the padded window seat to peer outside. The trees are bright splotches against the vivid blue sky—some crimson, others a sunny yellow—with a few fiery oranges scattered about. Their bold colors verify my suspicions.
It’s autumn now.
My spare time is spent reviewing television and movies, spending time with my large, loud, loving family, reading any book that falls into my hands, and being dragged into the fresh air by my dogs Yoda and Jilly.
